Lorena Segura and Jason Widener are a Dating team on The Amazing Race 12.

Although suffering from a tendency to bicker, as well as Lorena being prone to emotional breakdowns, the two nevertheless performed strongly in the first two legs, even managing to win the second. However, Lorena broke down once again during the Roadblock in the third leg, from which they just managed to avoid being eliminated. This resulted in them starting the next leg over an hour behind the other teams; it already would have taken a miracle to recover as the next leg had no equalizer, but being U-Turned by Shana & Jennifer made the effort hopeless, leading to their elimination in 8th place.
